I am 59 years old and recently retired. I have had a lifelong struggle with weight. I have asthma and high blood pressure. Recently I was told by my Dr. that I was prediabetic. This news really put a fire under me and I am determined to lose weight and get fit once and for all. I am going to the gym regularly and have just joined group sessions of personal training. As far as weight goes I am not concentrating on numbers just getting healthy and feeling better. Since I have started going to the gym regularly, I am 10 pounds down but even better have more energy and my skin glows. I am hoping the spark site will help with that fire I have lighted.

Hi Wendy, Thanks for the congrats.on the wedding photos and for your kind words. I think this was the first time, maybe in my life, that I actually liked the way I looked in photos. That's pretty huge for me. It was a beautiful, special day filled with laughter and joy. Hope you're having a great week!

Thanks Wendy for the gold star and New Year's wishes. If your interested, I've posted two blogs with mostly photos of my son's wedding. I've been missing blogs lately, they don't come up like they used to on this site, I miss that. Anyway, thanks again and have a terrific week!
